DigitalOcean Ubuntu 11.04 x64 Server
I just tried to launch a droplet from DO with the template shown above in San Francisco. The VPS will not boot, though. I have opened a ticket but I'm just wondering if anyone else has had any similar problem with their VPSes not booting with certain templates and/or locations.
When I try to boot the VPS, the execution time is horrendous, 100+ seconds (last was 249). But even once it says it has finished booting the server, a refresh says it is still powered off. I destroyed and recreated, but the issue persisted.
You could keep reading this on a site infamous for its ties to (ahem) one particular organization, or you could check out vpsBoard, which has no such ties and tolerates no bullshit. Your choice.
